Veritas NetBackup Primary Use Case

RN
System Engineer with 1-10 employees

We are an IT company that provides solutions to end users. Most of our end users come from the banking sector, the government sector, and other government-linked companies. When I say that we use Veritas NetBackup, I don't mean to say that we use it internally, but rather that we propose it and use it in solutions that we offer to clients.

Most of our clients use Veritas NetBackup to protect their highly critical workloads, which are often situated in virtual machines with Hyper-V or VMware. The primary workloads are databases ranging from Exchange, Oracle, MS SQL, and IBM Db2. And then it goes on to the application sites such as with SharePoint, NFS data, and all those things. Our users require this type of workload data protection on a full-time basis.

For backups, we use Veritas NetBackup and Veeam, and for virtualization we mostly use VMware. This covers our environment for all disaster recovery and replication scenarios. At times, we also rely on the default replication tools from either Veeam or VMware.

About 70% of our customers come from government agencies, and there are regulations from the Malaysian government that don't allow any data to be transferred to the public cloud. However, that doesn't stop the cloud backup initiatives in Malaysia because the regulation only states that it's not allowed when it goes to a cloud of which they don't know the location. Thus, many of the backup vendors work with local cloud providers to enable cloud backups.

We are currently phasing it out, and we've gone to Rubrik. At one point, we were backing up everything with it, which included physical and virtual NAS. We moved the virtual first and then we started packing the physicals to move them.

Solution Architect, IT Consultant at Merdasco - Rayan Merdas Data Prosseccing

We are a solution provider company and we have several support contracts with our customers. We try to select the best solution for each. In smaller environments, we prefer using Veeam Backup. For our larger enterprise customers, we use Veritas NetBackup. This solution is very stable and flexible for experts who wants a feature full backup solution.

Veritas NetBackup is implemented as a primary tool in the organization for making backup a huge landscape of Aix, Unix, Virtualization, and Windows machines. This includes Oracle, DB2, and SQL Database, and etc.
We mainly looked at a trusted long-timer in the market to be able to invest to ensure the solution is proven to be trusted.

Sr Solutions Architect at a computer software company with 1,001-5,000 employees

The use cases for customers are across the board, but they're all for data backup. Veritas is a legacy system. To be perfectly honest, a lot of people are moving away from the legacy systems and moving more towards the cloud-oriented backup solutions. A lot of my customers look at Veritas NetBackup as an antiquated solution.
